In her speech, Sultanah Kalsom thanked all parties for making the

Later, Sultan Ahmad Shah cut a special birthday cake and unveiled a
US-made Hummer vehicle with the number plate - SAS 2410 - presented to
him to mark his 84th birthday this year and commemorate his 40th

Ch’ng, who is also the TAT Alliance Services vice-chairman, said the

Ahmad Shah - were awarded to the company and was officially launched by
the state ruler on July 24.
He said since the first day of bidding in September, the number plates were selling like “hot cakes.”
“Originally, the series was reserved for vehicles registered in Sabah
and only expected to be launched some 60 years in the future.

release the special SAS series,” he said.

and members of the royalty, while SAS 1001 to SAS 9999 is open for all.
Owners of the series will be presented with a special crest and could
affix it on the front and back of their vehicle number plates complete
with a certificate of ownership.
Ch’ng said part of the proceeds from the sales of the special number
plates would go to the building fund for the construction of the
proposed Wisma MCPF Pahang.
One of the successful bidders was BR Tour Agency managing director
and Pahang MCA organising secretary Datuk Seri Lee Jin Xian, who took
